Our Founders

The Paradise International School is the branchild of Giani Balbir Singh Kaleka. He belonged to village Dugal of district Patiala, the area which had been, no doubt, politically active for the last three centuries, but remained much behind educationally, partially because of the lack of awareness regarding education and partially due to its geographical location. Giani Balbir Singh Ji had to travel long distance to Sri Mastuana Sahib on foot for his studies. He did his matriculation from Sri Mastuana Sahib in 1939. He completed his higher studies from Govt. Mohindra College, Patiala. He had the honour of being the first graduate of the area. Due to his job, he had to settle down in Patiala itself, but an itching was always in his heart that people of his native area are yet devoid of educational facilities and their children can only dream of the facilities which the children in urban areas are enjoying. This was his long desire to set up an institution with a difference in this area to cater to the educational and emotional needs of those who need more attention and are being ignored by those responsible for urbanization of the country. Giani Ji believed that there is a lot of hidden potential in the rural folk, which needs to be channeled through efforts, so that they too become good citizens to serve the country and area.

To respect the aspirations of Giani Ji, The Balbir Memorial Educational Society was set up in the year 2000 with Dr. Amritpal Singh Kaleka, the worthy son of Giani Ji, as its president. The sole motive of this society was to set up a premier institution in this area that will provide education to the children at their door steps and they need not to travel to long distances for getting education. This will prepare them to face the ravages of life boldly and to save them from the cruel hands of injustice.

No doubt, Giani Ji is not with us today, his inspiration and blessings hands are always with the school and his soul must be feeling contented to see his brainchild blooming to its full day by day under the eminent stewardship of his son and the society as a whole.
